An official told the Times of India that “provisions to this effect have been included in the new IT Rules for social media companies, and they have to take remedial action within a day after being notified by a user.”

So, if someone mimics legitimate accounts for various reasons, creates fake accounts for financial gains or for doing a crime or just for doing a mischief, social media platforms will need to remove such accounts immediately once the complaint has been filed.

Social media platforms including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and more consist of innumerable fake account and this seems like a good initiative to clear them out. Currently, there are several fan pages of celebrities available as well that use personal photos of actors or politicians or cricketers to keep fans updated. In this case, if ­the concerned personality complains to the social media platform, then such fan based accounts can also be removed within a period of 24 hours.
